BreastfeedLA  presents a timely seminar about a topic in high demand: the safe handling of human milk.  As the volume of expressed breastmilk being shared and donated continues to rise throughout our state, it is critical for healthcare providers and parents to understand best practices for handling human milk.

Caroline Steele, the Director of Nutrition & Lactation Services at Children’s Hospital of Orange County will begin the day with a practical and informative talk on starting a donor milk program. Her work at CHOC is a model for other facilities and communities.

The second session will  offer an in-depth look at  the mission of the Mothers’ Milk Bank in San Jose, presented by the Milk Bank’s Executive Director, Pauline Sakamoto.

After lunch, Caroline Steele will review the latest evidence on how to safely express, store, thaw, and handle human milk.      Caroline’s experience creating protocols in the hospital and her comprehensive knowledge of the guidelines of the Human Milk Banking Association of North America (HMBANA) will help attendees put all of the most commonly asked questions to rest.

To conclude the day, Pauline Sakamoto will discuss the concepts of formal and informal milk sharing and offer healthcare providers and the community optimal ways of communicating the importance of valuing human milk and its impact.

This seminar will bring together all the facts and best practices to get donor milk programs operational and efficient throughout the community.    Get inspired and educated about human milk handling with BreastfeedLA at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on August 28!
